The Undertaker (original name: Mark William Calaway) completed his 30 years in WWE on Sunday, 22 November. On this day three decades ago, the Deadman had made his debut and went on to earn the status of a legend in the sports entertainment.
To make it a memorable occasion, The Undertaker announced his retirement at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, at the Survivor Series. The WWE celebrated his 30th anniversary and given him the "Final Farewell" at Survivor Series.
The Phenom has not just been an entertainer for fans, but a locker room leader for decades. He has been a guide, trainer and a role model to the talents, who are fondly recalling his influence on them on this occasion.
In this incredible journey, the Deadman played over 800 matches and above 175 pay-per-view clashes. Probably, the 55-year old is the only wrestler who has been loyal to the company for such a long time.
As a result, the people, who are associated with him, are thanking him for being great entertainer using hash tags like - #Undertaker30, #SurvivorSeries and #ThankYouTaker. WWE CEO Vince McMahon, Triple H, Dwayne Rock Johnson, John Cena, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and many others have paid tributes to the Deadman on social media sites.
